About the designer
Hi, my name is Barbel. A quick note of about my work. Most of my pieces are handmade, with some cast elements, mainly in Fine/Sterling silver [no nickle to cause allergies]. Where I haved used copper/brass elements, it will be clearly stated in the description of the item. I love my work and am extremely lucky to live in the beautiful mother City of Cape Town, South Africa. The magnificent natural surrounds of our city are a constant inspiration to create items of beauty. I use large variety of techniques to give variation to my creations. We as South Africans are closely connected to nature, and we Capetonians love the sea and creatures in it, hence the strong influence it has on my work. I love the organic flow of molten silver to give the piece an unstructured permanent finish, and therefore use reticulation and watercasting frequently. I hope you will enjoy my creations as much as I love making them.
Have fun browsing.
